Significant ice accumulations are possible and may lead to disruptions in travel and power, especially across the southern half of Kentucky. Reminder that even a small amount of ice on the roads can cause numerous travel concerns and hazardous conditions as we saw during the morning commute. Plan on hazardous driving conditions. Power outages and tree damage can be expected.
Travel is strongly discouraged. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency. Prepare for possible power outages.
Also, very cold air is forecast in the region this weekend, with lows in the single digits to middle teens possible Sunday night/Monday morning. There is also a small chance of a weak wintry system coming through on Saturday and another wintry system on Monday-Tuesday. Confidence is low in the forecast for those two systems, but we wanted to let you know there’s a possibility of additional winter weather in the days following the current storm.
